Here's a small collection of photos from last Friday. It was too busy to get many quality photos, so I'm going to try and get back to the gallery before the show closes. It's really impressive in person, even with the crowd. So if you're in the general area before the show closes I really recommend going to see it.














































Thanks,

kevin

I was blessed to have time and access to shoot much of the show the day before and posted about 130 shots in their own ART OF TIKI photo album on facebook. I went back the following day for the exhibit and signing and took about 20 more photos of the fun people there, many of the ARTISTS, adding those at the bottom of the first group in the SAME photo album. PLEASE ENJOY THEM ALL and pretend you were there in case you weren't. In fact, improve on it by fixing yourself a great tropical drink before looking! https://www.facebook.com/jim.marshall.9275/media_set?set=a.10155817446094283.1073741854.629934282&type=3 By the way, it's funny, the Tiki Central's spellcheck is saying "TIKI" isn't a word. It wants to replace it with SKI or WIKI!

Mea culpa for not posting about this seminal event on this forum, I was so busy with the whole book/exhibit promotion on other channels. I was sure I had opened a thread about the whole thing early on, but now I can't find it.

I even have a nod to TC in the book: The only piece of paper ephemera that exists of Tiki Central, a business card from its earliest Yahoo days :

Thanks for the info bigbro, and congrats on the book & what looks like a fantastic show!

Want to trade business cards?

The auction had many fantastic pieces, including some we did not realize were still in existence.

And, we did not know about Jordan Reichek until this show. Is he / was he on TC? Why is his home bar not in the home bars forum? It really makes you wonder about the Tiki that is still out there and off people's radar ...

heylownine thank you so much for the photos. I wish I lived closer so I could see it in person.

I've ordered a copy of the book through Amazon but it's not yet shipped. Sven I love all your books and I hope one day you will do another one.

Cheers, Wendy

Just visited this fantastic exhibit and art show. It was the middle of the day and the rooms were empty so I was able to take these pictures. it was an amazing experience to walk into the first room and see all these vintage tikis all over the room. I dont think I have ever seen so many tikis in one place, I did not want to leave this room. Here are some pictures.
Will post more pictures later.

Here's a little "Behind the Scenes" look of producing the book, clickable for non-Facebookers, too:

I am so happy to see the kona kai bird again! I remember when I first discovered all the artifacts out in pa years ago my jaw dropped! I salvaged what I could from the Kona kai. I sold the bird and a few other items but several jems from there still remain in my collection in jersey today.

Its been a while but here are the rest of the pictures I took.

These two images of the Gecko piece do not do any justice to how fantastic this piece was, one of my favorites. He is truly an amazing artist.


here are the rest,








I feel fortunate to have been able to see this one of a kind beautiful artwork in person.
